We didn't take this one!

I won't be blogging for a couple of days, as Real Life is going to be claiming my time, real people, real places, real conversations, I'll tell you all about it when I get back.  In the meantime, I am leaving you with a picture from the Jubilee weekend that Mr Letters From Home didn't take, as unfortunately we don't own a world war two war plane,or in fact any other kind of plane, now I come to think of it! 

Breathtaking: The view of Buckingham Palace and The Mall beyond from the Lancaster bomber
(Google images)

This is a fantastic shot, taken from a Lancaster Bomber as it flew over London, showing Buckingham Palace and the long snake of hundreds of thousands of people filling the Mall on Tuesday afternoon.  The dark circle in the middle is a solid body of hundreds of thousands of people.  You can also see the London Eye in the background, which I've been on a few times.

Have a great weekend!

Just joined your site. You obviously had an amazing time. It makes such a difference 'being there'. We just sat down for two days in front of the box. We do know someone who was in the Pageant though, but couldn't see her in that wonderful melee of boats. Great photos. Thank you. Ann x

Just had a look at your blog catkin tales, very pretty, I used to live in Paris, so your pics made me feel a little homesick for that wonderful city.
